Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking:
We’re seeing consolidation in the index on the expected lines however the buying interest on every dip clearly shows the market mood. We reiterate our advice to utilise intermediate correction to go long in quality counters until we see some sign of trend reversal.
Having said that, it’s not easy to identify performers at the record high and the risk of false breakout is also there. We thus recommend limiting the naked leveraged bets and maintaining strict risk management rules.
